    More post-event news is cropping up, after the debut of today's PlayStation Showcase. Not only did we learn that the console will be launching this November, we also got to see the price: $399.99. Sony also revealed that certain PlayStation 5 games will retail for $69.99, while some games thought to be PS5 exclusives will also release on the PS4. These games include Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West. Both the digital and physical versions of these games will offer free upgrades to the PlayStation 5 versions, should you choose to eventually play on the next-gen console.

    The current launch lineup for the PlayStation 5 will focus on 5 titles from first party studious: Astro's Playroom, which comes pre-installed with the console, Demon's Souls which retails for $69.99 in North America, Destruction All Stars, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.

    The higher price point means that the games will be final and not need an update to address bugs on a rushed release. Lol

    Any news about Dolby Vision support?
    This is literally the one thing I want to know before deciding physical versus digital

    ouch, 70usd a game?
    It means it will cost more than 100CAD here with taxes
    We pays 80CAD right now and with taxes it brings it over 90$ :(

    I was wondering how it would look like in other regions, but 100 CAD is just $76 USD isn't it? So not a huge delta over the US price. Even worse in Europe apparently though.

    $70 for games :wacko: sorry but games have only gotten buggier more like back to 49.99 and refunds for broken games give us our digital rights you bastards :(

    so Xbox looking to do some damage next gen with their pricing, too bad they don’t have enough first party titles to launch their system

    I've been a huge PS fan for so long, but this is looking grim. The fact you can buy a Xbox console right now, that will play next gen games, at a fraction of the cost, albeit slightly reduced graphics - is a steal. Game Pass, is the absolute G.O.A.T. even into 2021.

    Yeah, that's pretty ridiculous, especially since some games will not have that big of a price drop.

    80 euros per game is ridiculous, disc-less version is a no-go.

    it seems we dont have the same definition of what "very high priced" means
    76USD is still less than what we pay right now without taxes (80CAD)
    Also, USD and Euro have pretty much the very same value
    Games will also be 69.99euro up there

    And finally, USD currency might be higher valuable, wages in our countries are the same
    For a job in us where the wage is 20USD/Hour, the same job in Canada will be waged at 20CAD/Hour

    So yea, video games are VERY high priced in Canada :(

    That's.. a pretty sad lineup to say the least. Looks like I'll be waiting a couple of years until all the worthwhile games are out

    Gotta appease Queen Elizabeth somehow, even though she'd likely never touch or see one in her grubby little castle. :mthr::teach:

    On other sites I'm seeing "I'll just get the Game Pass." Yeah, pretty sure that's part of the plan of raising these game prices. Cloud gaming.

    And a less-fugly console revision is made. It's so hard to look at. Whoever passed this design along needs taken out back and shot. I've seen better looking fan-made renders, honestly. Just bring back the fat PS2/Xbox One X look and feel. Stick with what works.
